Connect EFP

Extended Family Partner


Develop a relationship with a Homes of Love child by participating as an Extended Family Partner.

Being an Extended Family Partner (EFP), allows a child who is living in a Home of Love to become a member of your own extended family. This gives you an opportunity to develop a meaningful relationship with the child through letter writing, prayer, and other forms of communication.

As an EFP, you will also support your child's HOL parents in a similar way. The HOL parents provide love and care as the father and mother in your child's home. They need your prayers for wisdom and encouragement as they raise the child and help them prepare for the future. Encouraging faith is a very important aspect of a Homes of Love family environment.

Your Commitment

  • Prayer support for your child and their HOL parents.
  • Write an annual letter to your child (which we will translate into their native language, if necessary).
  • Send photos to your child.
  • Consider a financial commitment. The average cost per child is $150 per month. This includes the cost of education, medical needs, housing, food, and a nurturing environment.

Our Commitment

  • Provide you a welcome kit with personal information about your HOL child.
  • Inform you of prayer requests and progress updates.
  • Send you an annual letter and photo from your child (translated into English, if necessary).
  • Forward to you any special cards, artwork, etc. that we may receive from your HOL child.
  • The opportunity to encourage and build a significant relationship with your child.

If you choose to become an Extended Family Partner, you may also

  • Visit your child through a Friends & Family Trip. (Click the "Travel" button to the left for more details.)
  • Make a one-time or ongoing financial donation to support the living expenses of your child. (Click the "Donate" button to the left for more details.)
  • Become an Education Sponsor for your child. (Click the "Education Sponsor" button to the left for more details.)

If you are interested in extending your family to include an HOL child, please contact us at efp@homesoflove.org.

Connect education sponsor

Education Sponsor


Develop a relationship with a Homes of Love child by participating as an Education Sponsor.

Being an Education Sponsor allows you to invest in the life of a Homes of Love child by financially supporting his or her education, praying, and writing an optional annual letter. Providing for a child's school fees, tutoring, supplies, and uniforms makes a real difference in his or her future, and your prayers and letters will help further cultivate a child's sense of confidence and self worth.

The average educational cost per child in grades K-12 is $50 per month. College or vocational training costs are $150 per month. (Partial sponsorships for college or vocational training are available for $50 or $100 per month.)

Your Commitment

  • Financial support for your child's education.
  • Prayer support for your child and their HOL parents.

Children dream...of happiness, safety, a loving family, and a bright future. But for some, those dreams have vanished.

In Zimbabwe more than 1.2 million children have lost a parent; most predominately due to AIDS. In Cambodia 37% of victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation are children. In Vietnam poverty is the major contributing factor to the 1.5 million children abandoned.

Homes of Love is a place of restoration where children's dreams do come true...where real parents care for and protect them...where they can begin to dream again. Your gifts allow this to happen.

Develop a relationship with a Homes of Love child by participating as an Extended Family Partner.

Being an Extended Family Partner (EFP), allows a child who is living in a Home of Love to become a member of your own extended family. This gives you an opportunity to develop a meaningful relationship with the child through letter writing, prayer, and other forms of communication.

As an EFP, you will also support your child's HOL parents in a similar way. The HOL parents provide love and care as the father and mother in your child's home. They need your prayers for wisdom and encouragement as they raise the child and help them prepare for the future. Encouraging faith is a very important aspect of a Homes of Love family environment.
